, only my case. you know, this is a, a great frustration, obviously. you can understand the new president obama with a different point of view than many of us hoping that through his intelligence and personality and different point of view that maybe the russians would be receptive to a new approach which is sort of the anti-bush approach. you can understand why he might think he could succeed at that. and, therefore, try this out. so i'm not criticizing him for trying. you can question whether he should reasonably have come to that conclusion, but nonetheless, he tried it. i hope that he is shrewd enough to appreciate that it has failed, it is not likely to succeed because of a variety of reasons and that you can't keep going down the path chasing after somebody that doesn't want anything to do with you right now without doing damage to yourself, and you can see a lot of examples where that's occurred. just to cite one example, the very difficult situation that has been created with the czech republic, with poland, with our missile defense system which i would argue is now pret

for this excessive spending? even if we did believe that president obama would dedicate new revenue from tax increases to help pay down the deficit -- and i don't believe that -- new revenue extracted from the top two brackets would only fund the government for about a week, a little less than a week. so that's clearly not the answer. when the president says well, we need to ask the wealthy to pay a little more, let's parse that for a second. you're not asking them to do it. if you pass the law, i.r.s. will come after you if you don't. so this is not a pleasant request. this is i.r.s. saying you have to pay more money to the united states government. and the president always likes to say a little more. well, it's not so little if your tax rate now goes up to almost 40%. if you're a small business man and you have got to pay 40% to uncle sam, you're probably not going to be able to grow your business. you might not be able to stay in business. you're certainly not going to be able to hire more people. so that's not little to them. it is little to funding the united states government.

business people. even president obama acknowledges that two-thirds of the new jobs in our economy are created by small businesses and the vast majority of small businesses are organized as flow-through businesses or what we call flow-through business entities, such as partnerships, s-corporations, limited liability companies and sole proprietorships. in other words, these small businesses pay the individual income tax rates, because the vast majority of small businesses are flow-through business entities, the income from these businesses flow -- flows through the business directly on to the -- to the small business owners' individual tax returns. therefore, any increase in individuals' tax rates means those small businesses get hit with a tax increase. this tax increase lands on those small business owners even if they do not take one penny out of their business profits. and they put it all back in to be able to hire more people or to get more inventory or whatever that helps their business along. even if a small business reinvests all of its income to hire more workers, pay the worke

single new trade agreement during the first four years of the obama administration. and this administration has not yet asked congress for a renewal of trade promotion authority despite the fact that that t.p.a. expired over five years ago. the cost of inaction on trade is high because today we live in a global economy where american producers rely on access to foreign markets. more than 95% of global consumers live outside the united states. consider that in 1960 exports accounted for only 3.6% of u.s. g.d.p. today exports account for 12.5% of our g.d.p. exports of u.s. goods and services support over 10 million american jobs. if we do not aggressively pursue new market opening agreements on behalf of american workers, we will see new export opportunities go to foreign businesses and foreign workers. so while i'm pleased that we're considering pntr today, i hope that president obama in his second term will recognize the potential for increased trade opportunities through a more aggressive trade agenda. i look forward to the president signing this legislation into law, and i

billion in new revenue by 2022 and more than $5 trillion in additional federal revenue by the year 2013. christina romer, former chair of the economic advisors under president obama, equated a 1 percentage point change in g.d.p. with a million jobs a year. given these estimates there should be a bipartisan consensus that what we need is higher economic growth, not higher taxes. i would propose that the fiscal cliff is both a challenge and it's an opportunity. it's a challenge to get the federal government's runaway spending under control. but it's also an opportunity for us to make real entitlement reforms and to put in place a structure for comprehensive tax reform next year that will have enormous benefits for our economy. i hope, mr. president, that our president, the president of the united states will soon join the discussion that many of us have been having about comprehensive tax and entitlement reforms. presidential leadership on both of these critical issues is long, long overdue, and it is essential, mr. president. you cannot do big things in this country. you can't do entitle
